Adam is a great teacher. He praises you for things you do properly and patiently tries to correct any mistakes. His song suggestions that would be used for practice try to highlight your voice as you apply the techniques you learned. They also sometimes take you out of your comfort zone to challenge you and expand your growth. Would highly recommend him as a teacher!

Adam is an excellent teacher! I have always been intimidated by playing the drum set, but Adam was so good at explaining each step that it felt almost simple. After just a few lessons I was able to figure out some songs on my own, and felt confident enough to play with friends. Thank, Adam!

David is a very skilled drummer and a very enthusiastic teacher. In lessons, he seems to like to split time between practicing rudiments and learning to play different rhythms on the set. He is also exceptionally patient and supportive with my 9-year-old, highly distractible daughter. David is very positive, pointing out things that are going well and interesting rhythms that they discover. I am really glad we found David--he is an excellent teacher and I love watching my daughter learn so much about music!

All students learn differently so I focus on catering each lesson to the student's goals. I want the student to have fun, feel comfortable, and also be productive in our lessons. Students can expect to learn the foundations of piano including scales and key signatures, while also learning new songs that they want to be able to play. Ultimately, my goal is to have students develop their love for music.

About Sophie
Sophie has been teaching piano lessons both privately and in a group setting since the summer of 2009. She is available to teach you either online, or at your home.

Sophie received her Bachelor of Music degree in Classical Composition from the Manhattan School of Music in 2012, with a minor in Piano. Sophie is currently pursuing a career as a singer-songwriter.

Sophie looks forward to helping you reach your musical goals and understands that the approach to teaching is different for every student. With her classical background as well as jazz influences, Sophie looks forward to working hard with you while having fun. Some lesson topics might include: learning how to play a song YOU love, learning fun chord progressions, and understanding how to get better at playing piano.

Students can expect to develop a passion for music by learning piano in my lessons. Lessons will be fun and I hope to make students not only look forward to the next lesson but want to go home and practice. I have enjoyed playing piano throughout the course of my life and hope to help others gain a sense of passion for music and piano.

About Michael
I recently graduated from St. Joseph's University with a degree in Biology. I minored in music, specifically in piano performance. I am currently the pianist for the chapel at St. Joseph's University. I have studied piano since I was a young kid, but at St. Joe's I have studied with Dr. Emi Kagawa, a renowned pianist. In the past, I have played piano for theater, churches, as well as jazz bands. I also play trombone and have played in orchestras, concert bands, and jazz bands. From my home, I teach using an 88 key weighted Korg keyboard which has worked well for many students.

My husband (Ryan) worked with Michael over 5 sessions as a complete beginner. Michael was very open minded to teaching whatever kind of music he wanted to play. Ryan felt that Michael did a great job of pointing out exercises to work on, and how to break down songs not just by reading music but also adding, blending and working through the root of the song to make it his own experience. My husband really enjoyed his lessons and the jump-start that Michael gave him to continue practice working through his technique. It was overall a great experience, and Ryan would recommend Michael to anyone looking to learn how to play the piano.

Mrs. Ho is the best teacher I have ever had. I am in my 60s and I have had many years of experience working with several teachers, some were good, but never to the level of Mrs. Ho.
She is a professional and high level concert pianist, who is also a fantastic pedagogue, not to mention she is also patient and super nice.
I believe that anybody at any level could benefit enormously from taking lessons with her.

Both of my daughters love to sing. We signed up for lessons so they could learn their favorite pop songs; one of my daughters also took piano. They've learned how to hit notes easier and how to properly warm up; Lia is great at finding fun ways to keep them engaged while also still learning. The combination of piano and voice for my youngest has been really valuable. I highly recommend Lia for your lessons!

When I was eight years old, I begged my parents for a piano and lessons. I just wanted to be able to play like my favorite musicians! It didn’t turn out the way I wanted, but I did learn a solid foundation on which to play and write any music I want.

I’ve taught for many years, but in and out of the public school system. We can set up a plan and measurable goals so you see your accomplishments immediately.

Would you like to learn and succeed using your strengths instead of having people focus on your weaknesses? I know that positivity will help more than frustration in trying over and over and struggling.

I’ve taught all grades between Kindergarten through 8th grade. My positions have been a Media Specialist, general and special ed in grades 5-8, English, Creative Writing, Medieval and Renaissance history, and a Literacy/Reading specialist.

My main goal is to get you playing and enjoying the piano and music. While I will use a classical approach to lessons there will be much wriggle room for the tunes that the student wants to play. Lessons should be fun and challenging. If something is not working then we will find something to make it work.
